Arrived safe and sound, boy the heat and humidity is something else. Stayed on site for our first afternoon and evening as we were all knackered. Great apartment with balcony overlooking the pool and with a fantastic sunrise view! Experienced our first thunderstorm and vertical rain ! Got rained into the pub we were eating in! Hubs wasn't worried about that!
So far we are all loving it!

It's Here....

 I can't believe its finally here.
We're off on the holiday of a lifetime.

To say I am excited is an understatement, all the stress and anxiety is slowly slipping away. This has been a long time planning, saving and organising, now its time to enjoy.

I even bought some funky ears !
why not, I love them, my inner child is coming out and as the boys are horrified (embarrassing mother) seems like a fun thing to do.

Actually I have loads of Disney themed t-shirts too!

Meet Frank.

In amongst the busyness of life we found a hound !
yep, we have a new member to our family.
I am over the moon he is such a perfect fit.
Hes been with us a week and seems to be settling well.

He's a 7-8 year old lurcher, with the sweetest temperament.

The timing was a little wrong as we are due to fly out to Orlando next week. However the rescue are going to board him for us . Not ideal, and I am pretty sure hes not going to be happy, but hopefully he will forgive us when we go to pick him up.

Phew & welcome

Well the training delivery went well, passed that test. Phew.

I have to say I was blooming knackered after 4 hrs of delivering training. I think the stress and the build up contributed and I am obviously someone who likes to walk whilst talking, did about 5k steps, can you believe that ! I was walking up and down the room during activities as well.

 Glad that's over now, something else to tick off the list. I hate being on probation , it does seem I take 1 step forward and 1 step back, but that's part of learning the job I suppose. That little anxiety
workbook has really helped me process my thoughts, especially went i get 'Constructive feedback '

I seem to be settling more and not so discombobulated, I think I may really like the job when I actually feel like I am able to do it competently, only time will tell. I'm still dreaming and planning that downsize dream mind, how lovely to think I may actually be able to give up work at some point in the near future, but for now its all about enjoying life and balancing it up with work I suppose.
